if it was only about violence it'd been much better. Christ parabolas are good but he clearly couldn't handle it the right way. all those asian muscles are good, though
The first 2/3 are much better than expected, given the poor word of mouth this film has. Unfortunately, Tran's otherwise excellent, moody neo-noir spins out of control when he jumps tracks for a loopy retelling of the Christ story in the last 1/3. Too bad, though I Come with the Rain is still worth seeing.
Trân Anh Hùng has showed two faces in his films: depending on whether the main subject of his film is male of female. I personally feel his 'male' films, namely 'Cyclo' and 'I come with the Rain' to be more compelling for me, even if they're quite demanding visually. This modern story of Christ set in Hong Kong is very striking. Love it in spite of a certain lack of coherence in the acting)
Now that I look back on it, even though this movie is not very good, there are some scenes in I Come With The Rain (ie. Lee Byung-Hun + hammer + body bag) that will stay with me forever.
